Shockwave (Acoustic Wave Treatment)

 Shockwave (also known as ESWT/AWT) is a non-invasive medical treatment that utilizes sound waves to stimulate healing, regenerate tissues, and address various medical and aesthetic concerns. The shock waves are high-energy acoustic waves that, when applied to targeted areas, trigger biological responses, promoting tissue repair and regeneration.

What Is Acoustic Wave/ESWT/Shockwave?

AWT/ESWT is considered a great solution for regenerating tissue because it employs high-energy acoustic waves, often referred to as shock waves, to interact with tissues in a targeted manner. These shock waves are generated externally and are then focused on specific areas of the body, triggering biological responses.

The ESWT device, equipped with a handpiece, is applied to the skin over the targeted area. The device generates acoustic waves that are delivered to the affected tissues. These shock waves can penetrate the skin and reach deep into the underlying tissues.

ESWT has emerged as a cutting-edge technology in the realm of aesthetic treatments, offering innovative solutions for various conditions. Let’s delve into the world of ESWT, exploring what it is, its diverse types, and the areas it can effectively treat.

It’s important to note that Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy should only be performed by a trained and experienced medical professional, as there are potential risks and complications associated with the procedure.

Regenerative Medicine

Types of AWT/ESWT/Shockwave

Focused ESWT

Concentrated shock waves are directed precisely to a specific point, making it effective for treating localized issues such as musculoskeletal injuries and certain aesthetic concerns. F-ESWT is commonly used for conditions like plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, and cellulite reduction.

Radial ESWT

Radial shock waves are dispersed over a broader area, making it suitable for larger treatment areas. This type is often used for promoting tissue regeneration and enhancing blood circulation. R-ESWT is employed for conditions like erectile dysfunction, aesthetic skin rejuvenation, and addressing scar tissue.

What Areas Can I Treat with AWT/ESWT/Shockwave?


Muscles and Joints:

Myofascial Pain Syndromes: ESWT may be considered for chronic muscle pain conditions.

Trigger Points: Shock waves can be directed at trigger points in muscles to relieve pain and improve function.

Feet and Lower Limbs 

Plantar Fasciitis: Shock wave therapy is often used to alleviate heel pain caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia.

Achilles Tendinopathy: ESWT can be applied to address chronic Achilles tendon pain or injury.

Back and Spine:

Chronic Back Pain: ESWT is being explored as a treatment for chronic back pain in some cases.

Upper Limbs

Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis): ESWT is used to reduce pain and promote healing in the tendons of the elbow.

Calcific Shoulder Tendinopathy: Shock waves can break down calcifications in the shoulder tendons.

Sexual Health:

Men’s Sexual Health: Shockwave enhances men’s sexual health by improving blood flow and promoting tissue regeneration in the penis. It stimulates the growth of new blood vessels and collagen, which helps restore erectile function and increases sensitivity. 

Women’s Sexual Health: Shockwave can significantly enhance women’s sexual health by improving blood flow and stimulating the regeneration of tissue in the genital area. It helps increase sensitivity, lubrication, and overall sexual satisfaction. The therapy promotes the formation of new blood vessels and collagen, which can rejuvenate the vaginal tissue and enhance its function.





Aesthetic Applications

Skin Tightening: Applied to various body areas, ESWT stimulates collagen synthesis, improving skin elasticity and reducing sagging.


Facial Rejuvenation: ESWT can be applied on the face to address fine lines, wrinkles, and enhance overall skin texture.


Scar Tissue Reduction: ESWT is used to break down fibrous scar tissue, potentially improving the appearance of scars resulting from injuries or surgeries.

Cellulite Reduction: ESWT disrupts fibrous bands responsible for cellulite, promoting collagen production and tightening the skin.

Benefits of AWT/ESWT/Shockwave

Scar Tissue Reduction:

  • ESWT can break down fibrous scar tissue and stimulate the natural healing process. Whether addressing scars from injuries or surgical procedures, ESWT helps minimize the appearance of scars, contributing to smoother and more even skin.

Cellulite Reduction and Skin Tightening:

  • ESWT disrupts fibrous bands responsible for cellulite, encouraging collagen production and skin tightening. This aesthetic application addresses cellulite concerns on thighs, buttocks, and abdomen, offering a non-surgical approach for smoother and more toned skin.

Erectile Dysfunction Treatment:

  • For men experiencing mild to moderate erectile dysfunction, ESWT offers a promising treatment. By enhancing blood flow and stimulating tissue regeneration in the genital area, ESWT contributes to improved sexual function and increased confidence.

Musculoskeletal Healing:

  • ESWT is a game-changer in treating musculoskeletal conditions. It promotes healing for issues like plantar fasciitis, tendinopathies, and calcific shoulder tendinopathy. By stimulating cellular repair and enhancing blood flow, ESWT offers a non-invasive solution for improved functionality and reduced pain.

Aesthetic Skin Rejuvenation:

  • ESWT promotes collagen production and tissue regeneration, making it a valuable tool for aesthetic skin rejuvenation. It reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and improves overall skin texture and elasticity. The non-invasive nature of ESWT allows individuals to enjoy a refreshed appearance with minimal downtime.

Non-Invasive and Minimal Downtime:

  • One of the key advantages of ESWT is its non-invasive nature, reducing the risk of complications associated with surgical procedures. Additionally, the minimal downtime allows individuals to resume their regular activities promptly, making it a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles.

How does ESWT work?

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive medical treatment that utilizes high-energy shock waves to stimulate healing responses within the body. These shock waves trigger biological effects, such as enhanced blood circulation and the release of growth factors, promoting tissue repair and regeneration.

Does the ESWT hurt?

ESWT is generally well-tolerated, and discomfort during the procedure is minimal. However, individual pain thresholds may vary. Local anesthesia or numbing cream may be applied to enhance comfort.

How long do the effects of the ESWT last?

The duration of the effects of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) can vary depending on the specific condition being treated and individual factors.

How long does the ESWT procedure take?

The duration of an ESWT session depends on the specific condition being treated. However, most sessions last approximately 15 to 30 minutes.

What can I expect after the procedure?
  • You may get your pain receptors and nerve fibers affected due to the analgesics ESWT has. This can result in pain relief, particularly in conditions associated with chronic pain, such as plantar fasciitis.
  • It’s common to experience mild soreness or discomfort at the treatment site immediately after the procedure. This is usually temporary.
  • In many cases, you can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. Your healthcare provider will provide guidance on any specific restrictions. 
  • Any initial soreness or discomfort tends to diminish over the next few days.
